As of the latest update by the Greek authorities, the total number of confirmed Covid-19 diagnosed cases in Greece 1,812,384. 111 new deaths were reported raising the total number to 22,748. The number of patients treated in intensive care units is currently 655. 19,075 new cases were announced yesterday in Greece. 6,220 of the new cases were found in the Attica region and 1,818 new cases in the Thessaloniki region.
Covid-19 vaccination centers in the Attica region and the island of Evia will close at 3 p.m. Monday due to extreme weather conditions, authorities said.
Vaccination centers will also remain closed Tuesday as the wave of bad weather hitting Greece is forecast to continue.
Citizens are urged to reschedule their vaccination appointments.
Anti-vaxxers are a low-level threat to domestic security, according to a report by Greek intelligence that also seeks to decipher the sociopolitical profile of local movements against Covid-19 vaccines.
The report, which was seen by Kathimerini, describes the movement, whose origins are traced in July 2021, as a conglomeration of conspiracy theorists, far-right groups, deniers and other political opportunists.
The authors say it never acquired the characteristics of a mass movement similar to the Indignants, the main agent of social resistance to the country’s bailout agreements during the debt crisis.
However, they warn of potential radicalization depending on the progress of the pandemic and possible new government restrictions, which could lead to symbolic acts or even violence against political and health officials, journalists, vaccination centers and vaccinated-only bars and restaurants.
